The jaw dropping remarks John Edwards made about Israel were stunning in what it spoke to, what it really meant. Edwards is a left wing mime, parroting whatever is selling to the base of the Democratic party. His comments on Israel were not his own. Nothing is his own. He is incapable of "his own." This cardboard figure of a candidate could not conceive an original thought, or any real thought. He is slogan boy, shallow soundbite man. Edwards provided the echo of the steady drumbeats of chatterings and whispers (and in the case of KOS,` shout outs) of antisemitism in the Democratic antechamber.
This is what makes this moment a defining moment. Historians must take heed. This is one of those times in history where a direction, the winds of change, can be marked by a very definite - singular event. The outing of the antisemitism of the Democratic party. And don't think for one second that anti-Zionism is not antisemitism. It is, and all you have to do is read the acompanying remarks to any anti-Zionist rant. The hatred of the Jews is palpable.. If this were any other people, anybody other than the Jews, the world would be outraged by the ganging up on this small country, this tiny people. But it is not anybody else, it is the Jew.
John Edwards echoed the subtext of the Democratic party dialogue and it hit the MSM. His statement was not out of the box but a reflection of what is in the Democrat's Pandora's box. Just look at what the popular web site Wonkette had to say on Edwards statement;
But stating anything so obvious requires taking your lips off Israel’s ass for a few seconds, and that’s fatal for any American politician with presidential ambitions. This isn't because Jews get upset or Israel’s feelings will get hurt or anything. It’s because of batshit insane evangelical American Jesus Freaks who have to love and protect Israel so Jesus will come back and destroy it.
Kissing Israel's ass? In spite of the bloody, unthinkable barbarism of Islamic Jihad, America has demanded the most dangerous, ill conceived concessions from Israel which, inevitably served to make Israel weaker (perceptively) and strategically compromised.
Jew or no Jew, the struggle, the battle for or against Israel is a battle of values. VALUES. What one is willing to stand for, fight for, die for. Israel is fighting to survive, to live in peace and quiet, and to contribute to the whole of man. The savages will have none of it.
But if this is a defining moment for anyone, it is clearly the secular American Jews. 87% of American Jews vote Democratic. The party of choice for Islamic terrorists and their shills cannot continue to be the party of the Jewish people no matter how skillful the spin.
This is a crossroads.
